PROGRESSIVE INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM: “Think This Coal Country Southerner Voted for Trump? Hint: Bubba Got Brain” / TYT Politics ☮

Nic Smith, a self-described “white trash hillbilly from the holler” has a few choice words for The Young Turks and other “left wing media” outlets in regard to assumptions about people from the South and from Coal Country. Did he believe Donald Trump when he promised to bring all the coal jobs back? What does he think about popular narratives on the right, blaming immigrants for global economic conditions, or cutting back on immigration to protect the white majority? Nic Smith is a Virginia Raise Up “Fight for 15” activist who, in a previous TYT Politics report, thrilled the TYT audience with keen observations and enlightening insights about 21st century struggles for working class Americans.
